I swung by my local Target a few days ago to pick up much needed supplies (read: miniature cans of Coke Zero, emergency Gatorade, frozen enchiladas). While wandering through the aisles in search of things that I hadn’t realized that I needed , I momentarily entered an osteological wonderland: the Halloween decorations aisle.
Upon closer examination, I became somewhat perturbed:
I am not a comparative anatomist, but think that if cats had bony ears of this magnitude it would cause some serious issues.
I can’t tell if the skull on the right has some sort of weirdly cavernous frontonasal suture, or whether it’s supposed to be wearing sunglasses.
I was dubious, and KidZone confirmed that I had every right to be suspicious: “spiders do not have a skeleton inside their bodies”.
I was impressed by the bundle burials, however. And the sassy, if anatomically inaccurate, skeletal fish. On point there, Target.
Has anyone else seen any particularly ridiculous skeletal decorations this far in advance of Halloween? If so, share them in the comments. Happy weekend everybody!
